Me and my 16-year old daughter had a wonderful week with lots of hours in the saddle. We did the atw, which I can fully recommend for experienced riders. We stayed at the B&B the Lookout right next door, which is also great.

We had a terrific time with four kids ages 7-13 riding horses on the beach. Staff put the most nervous of the kids at ease and were very helpful. Highly recommend the experience. Bring cash (no cards)
